  1. Thanks Mary Okeke for your wonderful work. I read “Crime and Punishment” by Dostoyevsky. I was glad to read it and to finish it. I read it in French. I made some progress in English and I read « Nervous Conditions » by Tsitsi Dangarembga and Purple Hibiscus by “Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie”. I also read five to six collections of poems. I have just finished to reorganize my blog about literature, I hope to read more and to keep my blog “alive”. Merci M. Okeke pour ton initiative. Thierry

  3. Happy New Year, Mary. And congrats on managing to read 21 books in 2016. I am ashamed to admit that I didn't read a single one, at least not from start to finish. Hopefully I do better this year.

  4. My reading list in 2016 was abysmal. Part of my challenge was finding books that were worth my while. Hopefully I'll be able to get some good leads now I've found this blog. Btw, fantastic job, Mary!

  5. Happy New Year Mary! Here is to a year of good books and great reading.

    For 2016 I read 19 books. I think thats the most books I have ever read in a year since I started working 8 years ago. The only book I have in common with you is "This House is Not for Sale", it was an enjoyable read however my favourite books of the 19 I read were 'Behold the Dreamers' by Imbolo Mbue, 'Homegoing' by Yaa Gyasi, and Measuring Time by Helon Habila.

    2016 was a great year for African Literature and I hope it is the same this year.

      Congratulations!! 19 books that is quite a lot! I could not bring my self to finish "this house is not for sale". I am yet to read "behold the dreamers". Measuring Time by Habila is a gem, I read it last year.
      Wishing you a prosperous reading in 2017. Please keep it up.
